About this event

We are a Culture First chapter committed to designing sustainable change, embarking on a journey of continuous learning and unlearning through actively listening to the stories and experiences of others.

We come together primarily to discuss themes around belonging, equity, inclusion and diversity - but they are threaded through everything in our world!

This session, we are joined by Open Minds and Open Hearts chapter member Cherry Ward (Head of People, Asia, at Thiess), a People and Culture leader with extensive experience in leading cross-cultural, high performing teams and creating safe and inclusive workplaces.

Cherry will be taking us through how to build effective relationships across cultures, which are the building blocks of cultivating a culture of belonging and inclusion and will enable our success not only as leaders, but as humans. There will also be time for discussion and Q&A with Cherry at the end of our session.

Please note:

  • This is a space where everyone is welcome, no matter how far along in that journey you (and your organisation) is - we all have a lot to learn (and unlearn!).
  • This work doesn't just change lives, it saves lives. However it is usually quite slow and can be a lot to carry emotionally.
  • Show up as you are on the day, there is no judgement and no requirements other than an open mind and an open heart.
  • For those of you who are new to this chapter, please head to our LinkedIn group to connect with others passionate about creating a more inclusive and equitable world of work.
